Description/Abstract

The rapid development of the Chinese economy over the past 30 years has increased demand for passenger and freight transport considerably. Although restrictions on economic development have been alleviated by a major programme of road construction, China has begun to seek more sustainable ways of supporting transport development. Intelligent transport systems (ITS) have been introduced and a series of research has been conducted to take advantage of ITS applications in traffic management and control with significant social, economic and environmental benefits. This paper reviews the current use of ITS in China and presents policies, technologies, typical applications and recent activities in ITS development. The main achievements that reflect the current level of China's ITS development are described, in particular the ITS showcase programme and preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games. Finally, the paper discusses China's future ITS plans.
